Teams must travel by train to Chiasso, Switzerland. Once there, teams will drive themselves to the Tell Monument in Altdorf, where they will wait for a William Tell impersonator to deliver them their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to Lucerne and find the oldest wooden bridge in Europe, Kapellbrücke, to find their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to Hotel Schweizerhof, where they will don cleaning staff outfits and need to clean a trashed room to the standards of the gouvernante to recieve their next room.

Teams must drive themselves to the Swiss Museum of Transport and search for the marked artifact. Teams must identify the artifact as a tunnel drill to receive their next clue.

Teams must search the museum and find the Ford Mustang exhibit, where they will find a set of parked Ford Mustangs with their next clue.

Teams must use the road signs on the museum that tell of distances to other Swiss cities, and using the formula included in their clue, to calculate the model year of the Mustang they have chosen. Once they have the correct answer, they can show it to the president of the Swiss Mustang Club, who will give them their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to Oberrickenbach and search the milk tanker to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to make a traditional milk delivery by means of Bernese Mountain Dog. After picking a dog, one team member guides their dog pulling a cart carrying two empty milk jugs to one of two gondola stations. After unloading the milk jugs and riding the gondola to the top station, teams will carry the milk jugs to the dairy farm for that tramway and traded the empties for full jugs. The team member then will carry the full jugs back to the gondola and down to their dog, before bringing the dog and full milk jugs to the milk truck for their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Engelberg and then travel via gondola to the top of Mount Titlis to check in.

For coming in first, Dave & Connor each won a 2015 Ford Mustang.

For coming in last place, Caroline & Jennifer will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
